We need to know more about you, Malcolm

Last week I've been to the bookstore here in Vienna to buy the autobiography of Malcolm X. I was astonished to hear that they didn't have it and that it is not available in German. So I ordered an English copy. Actually I am reading it at the moment and more and more admiring this man. It is unbelievable how black people suffered and still do. Debt is modern slavery he says and to me this is true. I recommend this book to everyone. A shame that there are no more German copies available. To me this is a classic, like Anne Frank's Diary.

The sound of falling raindrops is one of the most beautiful sounds to me.



My private little garden in the city consists of a few flower boxes in my windows. There is so much joy in watching the plants grow.
